Thanks for posting that link, Tim. Below is a great color shot of that red Bud Gates Yenko Stormer at Sebring and it looks to me like Don Yenko is behind the wheel, however he had been banned from competition by the SCCA for 6 months for ignoring a black flag at the ARRC event in November '66.

Also below is a color picture of the blue Bill Boye Yenko Stormer Z-28 taken in July '67 prior to the Paul Revere 250 at Daytona. This was the car's first race. Fred Coyne was the Chevrolet dealer in Vero Beach, FL which is where Boye was from.

Here is a small newspaper article on the "top 20 finalists following the 4,500 mile Centennial 4000 Cross - Canada auto rally from Vancouver to Expo '67."  Notice that in 16th place came the Maurice Carter/Art Dempsey car referred to as a "Camaro Stormer."  This article was printed on the ninth page of the May 11, 1967 edition of The Barrie Examiner.  This rally took place May 3-10, 1967.

Found the article here: https://news.ourontario.ca/

Photos of the car during the rally: http://www.shell-4000-rally.org/4000_web/1967/1967image/index_2.htm  Notice the "Expo '67" sign under the back window in the fourth photo.
